Microsoft representatives in their response to the UK Competition and Markets Authority mentioned that the Superman game was available on PlayStation consoles. It seems they were wrong.
Superman used to say that with great power comes great responsibility. Or was it Spider-Man (or someone close to him)? Similar doubts may have been raised by Microsoft lawyers, who probably confused the famous superheroes in a recent response to the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).
Kidding aside, however, the bug appeared in a later document related to the Activision Blizzard acquisition. On its eleventh page, we can read that one of the PlayStation console exclusive titles is said to be a Superman game. Contrary to appearances, Microsoft representatives did not accidentally reveal the new game from one of the teams managed by PlayStation Studios: Apparently it was a simple slip. This is evidenced by the fact that the item has appeared alongside God of War since 2018, as works that have long been available to console users. This is the opinion of the famous journalist Jason Schreier, among others.
Everything indicates that Microsoft’s lawyers had Marvel’s Spiderman and his neighbor continuation in mind. Later, the second part of the series developed by Insomniac Games was repeatedly mentioned in the context of potential hits available on PlayStation consoles.
If you’re wondering why Microsoft is cracking down on Sony Interactive Entertainment games, let me remind you that, according to the Redmond giant, the Japanese company dominates the console market. This is to show that the acquisition of Activision Blizzard will not harm the competitiveness of the entire industry.

Of course, mistakes do happen and even this slip should come as no surprise. However, in the context of Microsoft lawyers, I can’t seem to get a bit cheeky picture out of my head with Pam Beesly from Office saying “these are the same pictures”. After all, both characters are awesome, right?
